WHY POETRY AND SONG?

Brain research shows that multiple areas in the brain are activated when students see print, hear music, and move. This leads to more engaged learning and JOY!!! We want students to love shared reading, so adding songs means we say goodbye to boring! WOOT!

Once the weekly poem has been used, add the poem to your poetry center. Your kindergarten and first-grade students will love visiting them again and again!

LISTEN TO WHAT OTHER TEACHERS ARE SAYING:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Nicole says, “I love how this resource covers so many phonemic awareness and phonics skills with the use of engaging poems. My students enjoy reading the poem every week and they can definitely build on those foundational skills with the included activities. ”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Slager’s Time Savers says, “I’m loving these poems, and they’ve went with our weekly themes. We insert the poem into our poetry books and highlight letters/words. They’ve also done better with the cut & paste sheets than I anticipated.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ How I Met Your Teacher says, ” I always loved these poetry sets. What I love more is that they have been adapted to support my students in distance and hybrid learning through Seesaw!! They have made my teacher life much easier!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ashley G. says, “When I taught second grade shared reading was my favorite time of day. Since moving to kindergarten I have struggled with shared reading. I love this resource–it keeps students engaged and active during shared reading. Thank you for adding the SeeSaw component–it will be perfect for my students who are hybrid this year.”

    Hi Deedee! I am super excited to use your poetry bundle in the fall. I already have Engaging Readers and Writing! I those two bundles printed and ready to use. I am trying to decide the best way to organize your poetry bundle. Are 3 ring binders the best?

    Excited!!!

    • Deedee

      Hi there! Sorry I missed this earlier. I put all of my sentence strips on binder rings. Then I put them in a sentence strip storage box. I put all of the poetry resources (print black line masters resources are spirally bound in on bin.) They are labeled by month so they are easy to swap out. Does that help?
